Programmer Job Opportunity

We are seeking a bright, motivated individual to develop a software tool to aggregate stream reaches. More specifically the tool will automate a spatially constrained clustering algorithm that aggregates adjacent reaches of similar landscape character into larger stream valley segment units.  You would be adapting and migrating existing VBA code (MS-Excel) called Valley-segment Affinity Search Technique (VAST) that was originally developed for use in Michigan. VAST needs some adaptations to optimize it for use in Ontario. It also needs to be migrated from VBA to Matlab.  The successful candidate will work closely with research staff. Demonstrated experience in programming and working with databases are required. VBA and Matlab programming experience is an asset. General GIS and GIS programming experience is also an asset.

Demonstrated experience in programming experience in programming (i.e. software development) and working with databases is required. GIS experience is not required but would be useful.
If interested please e-mail a statement of interests, your CV and the names and e-mail addresses of two people willing to act as references to Nicholas Jones (

Enrollment caps have been restored for CS courses

As per the course selection policy, enrollment caps for all CS courses have been returned to their actual class size. If the class or section is full then it means that you will need to wait for another student to drop it. You have until 11.59 p.m. on Monday May 14 to add courses.

The following courses still have waiting lists and department consent applied so you will NOT be able to add these courses.

Course enrollment for Spring 2018

Appointments for course enrollment began on Monday 26 March and open enrollment begins on Wednesday 28 March.

For students trying to add CS courses, we encourage you to review the course selection page.

In Computer Science,  we drop the enrolment caps by approximately 15% of the total enrolment number for the course to give advisors room to handle special cases. We will return the enrolment caps to their actual size in the second week of classes after we have had time to deal with the special cases. This will occur on Friday, May 4, 2018, (we don't know the precise time) and remaining space will be available on a first-come-first-served basis only if the section isn't already at its enrolment total. WHAT IS A SPECIAL CASE?
